big improvement on earlier verbatim drives
Pros: I can't make use of USB3 since I don't own any hardware with USB 3.0 ports, but I will be using this drive to offload photo files from a tablet. It is perfect for this job.
Cons: The software to format the drive doesn't work for me (Mac, using FAT32). The format fails every time. I finally ignored it and proceeded to hook the drive up to my Android tablet and it works fine.

fairly good drive
Pros: >lots of storage
Cons: >FAT32 formatting on arrival
Other Thoughts: this drive is great, ive been using for about a month in my nos110 class. i didnt have any issues with this drive until i tried to tranfer over a new vhd for winsvr2008 today. low and behold this happens to be the largest file that ive tried to transfer so far and i kept getting an error message "cannot copy file. file size too large for file system" after scratching my head for a few minutes, i decided to check the formatting on the drive, it comes in FAT32. while this would normally be fine on a flash drive, this is not a flash drive. this is a 500gb usb3.0 portable hdd. ntfs has been standard for years and on somethin this big, one would expect that to be the formatting. this isnt really that big of a problem tho and thats why im only taking away one egg on this item. its a really simple fix just open ur command prompt on windows and enter this line without quotes
